So...I was watching, a little Needle Drop last night; and I came across, the review of the latest Daughters' release You Won't Get What You Want
I remember, really liking...AFs pick, for Numero Uno last year; and that it had been a while, since I had given it a spin. I checked out the review again; and what grabbed me, second time around...were 2 mentions, of previous
One, was their last previous...2010 release, Daughters
s/t. I remember him talking about, how YWGWYW...was a real s t r e t c h i n g-out, for Daughters; as this record, some 8 years between releases...clocked in, at nearly 50 minutes. Which was a considerable step, from Daughters
I listened. W-o-W
How did this
gem; slip through the cracks...of my musical consciousness!? It was almost, which means not quite; as shameful...as when I was late to the party, on Surfer Rosa
. Which is, to say; yes...I think Daughters is nearly seminal
I was 4, napalm-scorching tracks in...when I remembered Mr. Needle-Drop Fantano; saying...Daughters
, was in turn a s t r e t c h, for a band who's debut (Canada Songs
)...clocked-in, at a scant 11:07. And that's not, an EP folks; 10 tracks...11:07!
So...I stopped Daughters
, to take less than a quarter-hour; to see, what Canada Songs
was all about. Ha; first reaction? Wow...did I put on, Head Wound City by mistake? I had to check: Canada Songs, 2003
...Head Wound City's EP, 2005
(BTW...7 tracks, 9:38). IDK; HWC, was made up...of 2 members of The Blood Brothers, 2 members of The Locust. And Yeah Yeah Yeah's Nick Zinner, for good measure. Their sound...is said to pull influences, from The Blood Brothers and The Locust; and I suppose that makes sense. But you tell me...
Now I get it: a lot
of Hardcore, sounds awfully similar; but let's get to the real
point of the post! That's Daughters
If you can dig, this kinda thing (postrok, I'm looking at you kid...lol); spin, spin; spin.
